Radio Smart Talk for Monday, February 25:
A secret Chinese military unit, based in Shangai, has been accused of conducting cyberattacks against more than 140 American companies. The hackers were allegedly targeting "broad categories of intellectual property, including technology blueprints, proprietary manufacturing processes, test results, business plans, pricing documents, partnership agreements and emails and contact lists from the the businesses' leadership."
How did the cyber spies do it and what can be done to protect American business, government, or military networks?
Michael Wright, who is on the corporate faculty at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology, will appear on Monday's Radio Smart Talk to explain.
Also, Tropical Storm Agnes and the resulting flood is one of the most significant events in Central Pennsylvania history. A new book that tells the story of the storm is on sale Monday. Tropical Storm Agnes in Greater Harrisburg is written by Erik Fasick, who will be a guest on Monday's program.
